Keep track of all the ways you can participate in Dystonia Zoo Days with the Dystonia Zoo Day Tracker. Each square is an action you can take to support Dystonia Zoo Days—in-person and/or virtually—and help advance the DMRF mission to find a cure.

The DMRF is pleased to return to in-person events in select cities to re-unite the dystonia community, promote awareness, and support the mission to find a cure. We’re especially excited to announce this year’s Dystonia Zoo Day season, with both in-person events and virtual opportunities to participate.

A Virtual Kick-Off Celebration on August 18, 2022 will mark the beginning of in-person Dystonia Zoo Days in eight US cities after a two year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The 3rd Virtual Dystonia Zoo Day & Closing Ceremonies on October 8, 2022 will close out the season.

Registration is open! Paid registrations for any in-person Dystonia Zoo Day ($25 adults/$15 children) includes zoo admission, refreshments, and event t-shirt.

Sign up for the virtual events is free and you can support Virtual Dystonia Zoo Day by purchasing a shirt, starting a team, or making a donation.
